Arlington Community Schools is proud to have hosted the 1st meeting for the 2015-16 LEAD Arlington Cohort. More than 30 business members, town government representatives, educators and students came together to collaborate, align, and connect information about our local education system, businesses and town government. Thanks to all of the great support from our local businesses and Town Hall in helping us to kick this first year off with this project. We look forward to our 2nd meeting at Town Hall in December. OUR educators, OUR businesses, and OUR town government are simply the best!
Statement From Superintendent Tammy Mason: “I am extremely proud of the work that our students, teachers, and administrators did in our inaugural school year. Most importantly, I am proud that our district not only met or exceeded our achievement goals, but we also showed tremendous growth.
